Certification Confirms the Electronic Manufacturing Services Provider Continues to Adhere to Stringent Requirements for the Production and Delivery of Medical Devices
MINNEAPOLIS, October 1, 2018 — Versa Electronics, a leader in electronic manufacturing services, today announced that it received ISO 13485:2016 certification an internationally recognized quality standard specific to the medical device industry. This certification upgrade comes only 12 months after Versa’s initial registration to ISO 13485:2003.
This ISO 13485:2016 certification confirms the quality of the company’s printed circuit board assemblies (PCBAs) that adhere to stringent requirements for the consistent production delivery of medical devices. Certification to the 2016 version is required by March 2019 to meet the European CE mark approval requirements.
Kevin Johnsrud, Versa Electronics CEO stated, “This certification is evidence of our team’s ongoing commitment to make quality our top priority. We are proud of this accomplishment in meeting the new ISO 13485:2016 requirements well ahead of the deadline.”
Bill Jackson, Quality Manager at Versa Electronics, highlighted the differences between the 2003 and 2016 version of the ISO 13485 standard. “The new version has a greater emphasis on risk management, risk-based decision making, and changes to the increased regulatory requirements for organizations in the supply chain. Versa had to demonstrate more record keeping as evidence of compliance, not just procedures. The new standard also places more emphasis on regulatory requirements for Federal, State, OSHA, and industry standards like IPC-610,” said Jackson.
Tony Zuberbuehler, Versa’s Sales Manager, continued, “With this certification, customers can be confident that Versa Electronics is dedicated to maintaining the highest level of quality, efficiency, and responsiveness defined by industry standards.”
ISO certification is an internationally recognized quality standard. The ISO 13485 is awarded to an organization who demonstrates its ability to provide medical devices and related services that consistently meet customer and regulatory requirements applicable to medical devices and associated services. The ISO 13485 is a requirement for medical device clearance in Canada, the EU and a majority of other countries that require products meet EU safety, health, and environmental and regulatory requirements.
